West Coast defender Beau Waters is the new player's representative on the AFL laws committee.
Waters replaces Fremantle captain Matthew Pavlich, who has stepped down due to an increase in business and study commitments.
Waters, currently recovering from a foot injury that ruined the end of his 2012 season, has played 113 matches since his debut in 2004 and featured in the club's 2006 premiership.
"The AFL greatly values the contributions of current players, and the wider AFLPA, to the important discussions around the Laws of the Game and is pleased that Beau will join the laws panel," said the AFL's acting football operations manager Gillon McLachlan.
Waters joins McLachlan (acting Chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Joel Bowden, Leigh Matthews, Luke Power, Rowan Sawers, Michael Sexton and Shane McCurry (secretary) on the laws committee.
